    * 2 large globe artichokes
    * 1lemons
    * 1/3 cup bulgur
    * 1 clv garlic, minced
    * 1 1/2 cup low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
    * 1 medium carrot, finely grated
    * 2 cup spinach, coarsely chopped
    * 2 oz crumbled feta
    * 1 oz sunflower seeds
    * 1/2 t dried oregano
    * 1/2 t freshly ground black pepper
    * 1 T olive oil


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Remove artichoke stems and discard. Slice off the top inch of 1 artichoke. Using kitchen shears, cut off the sharp tip of each leaf. Separate leaves and pull out enough from the center to reveal the fuzzy choke. Scoop out choke with a teaspoon and squeeze some juice from 1 lemon half into the cavity, then use the other lemon half to rub the artichoke all over to prevent discoloration. Repeat with remaining artichokes.

Pour lemon juice into the boiling water; add artichokes. Cook for 25 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, place bulgur and garlic in a heatproof bowl. Bring 1 cup broth to a boil; pour over bulgur. Cover and let sit for about 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Mix in next 6 ingredients. Preheat oven to 350F.

Drain cooked artichokes on paper towels for about 5 minutes, then transfer to a baking dish. Spoon the bulgur stuffing into each artichoke cavity, then pull the leaves apart and fill the spaces between them. Pour remaining 1/2 cup broth into bottom of dish. Drizzle olive oil over artichokes. Bake for about 20 minutes or until heated through.
